Door to Door (film)
Door to Door was a 2002 TV movie about Bill Porter (played by William H. Macy), a door-to-door salesman with cerebral palsy. The film was produced for the TNT cable network and was nominated for twelve Emmy Awards, winning six. Other actors in the film included Helen Mirren, Kyra Sedgwick, Michael Shanks, and Kathy Baker. It was directed by Steven Schachter.
Porter had been told for many years that he was not employable, but he threw all of his effort into working as a salesman for Watkins. Despite the pain of his medical condition, he would walk eight to ten miles a day to meet his customers. Porter has been able to support himself, and continued to work as a salesman at the age of 69 at the time of the film's showing.
